Corylus avellana - Full flowering

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 4 March 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Details of the flowers (male and female) of Corylus avellana (Common Hazel - Hazelaar) I showed a few days ago (23 - 25 Feb). Meanwhile temperatures here are less cold and the sun has shown for a few days now. So these trees now show full flowering. Golden flowers in the golden late sunlight.

@Ralph: Dank je zeer vriendelijk, Ralph. De boom was zo vol katjes dat het echt moeilijk was om door de katjes de boom te zien :-) en een goede compo te maken. Ik ben verheugd dat je die geslaagd kan vinden.

Marleen from Doesburg, Netherlands

Prachtige decoratieve katjes en schitterend vastgelegd!

@Marleen: "De natuurlijke decoratie is nooit te evenaren door de mens" (volgens mij toch). Bedankt voor het compliment.

Florence from Paris, France

Your focus really creates a wonderful DOF, bright and shinny. Well done for the crop.

@Florence: Thank you very much for your visit and nice comment. I really like working with a very limited DOF.
N.B. This is a 100% crop of the original picture.

Beautiful golden colours and nice focus, I should keep my eyes open, things like these should be showing in the next couple of weeks here.

For me spring is the most beautiful season ...
